Haven't seen a picture dump thread in a while so here we go. Pictures from my recent trip to glorious Nippon.

If anybody has some more pictures, feel free to join!

Starting with Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto. Fucking shitton of people there, but otherwise pretty nice.

seriously? I thought gion was amazing. Luckily the people I was with were Japanese so we ended up having a conversation with one of the Maiko.
Wakayama is pretty cool too, actually. Its really rural but it has some amazing temples and castles which not many tourists visit so they're not completely packed like kinkakuji

Actually my boyfriend is Japanese so we've had a long distance relationship for 4 years and I visit about 2 to 3 times a year and we visits when he can get the money together.
I love Japan and I love visiting but there are a lot of social problems out there which Japanese people don't acknowledge and they make me hesitant to move there permanently.

I can kind of understand that. It was a really nice country to visit and I'd certainly go there again to visit some other parts and maybe stay longer, like two months or so, but actually living there? nope. Just look at their working hours, that's ridiculous. Almost all of the people I met there, told me that they have to work 3 hours+ overtime each day. I even saw some people leave the office at 11 PM on a weekday.

On a brighter note, they have cool ass shit like this

Imo, Japan is not as expensive as I thought it would be, especially since I am from Europe and the euro to yen was something like 1:140 when I was there. You can find a hostel for around 15-20€ in most places, food wise, you could go as low as maybe like 1300-1500 Yen/day if you want to be a cheapo and there's tons of stuff to explore for free. Sure, it's probably more expensive than most other countries in Asia, but still cheaper than the US and Western Europe I think.

Next day in Hakone, I did the classical one day, five forms of transportation, sightseeing tour: cable car, rope way, ship, bus and railway.

Yeah, the "being there" part I can manage just fine. The problem is I'm in eastern Canada, so I won't ever find a plane ticket for less that $1,200.

I took a three-week trip this summer, total airfare was about $700, I lived pretty frugally and now unless my company sends me work it's possible I won't even have enough to make rent without using my credit card.

if you are from Tokyo, you can get the Hakone free pass (I even payed more without it, despite having a Rail Pass). It's a nice daytrip or maybe for two days even.

I actually had a pretty good experience, but mostly because I was staying in this amazing hostel that only opened like three month ago and that had its own onsen and amazing staff.

Also, I really enjoyed the open air museum, even though I am not into art normally

what did you think of kyoto? and osaka?
>>
>>908262
not op, but the general consensus is

kyoto- the temples get old pretty fast, especially if you've been to other temple cities. 90% of japanese tourism involves temples. The big ones are still worth it, though. transport in kyoto is a bitch. there are good hikes.

osaka- fucking ugly. pretty good food, but not the best in japan by most accounts. friendly people. cheaper. better partying than tokyo

don't have much more to add to that. In Kyoto, I felt I met a lot more Gaijin than in Tokyo or Osaka (and oftentimes the same people I met the day before or so), because they all seem to be concentrated around the same area (Kawaramachi). Temples are nice, but after seeing like 4-5 or so, it get's repetitive quite fast (like that anon said).

I didn't stay long in Osaka, though I think I wouldn't have if I could. Yes friendly people and the nightlife seems pretty good, but for tourists, I think there aren't enough attractions to warrant staying there longer than maybe 4 days maximum. That said, I really loved the aquarium and had a great stay at an amazing hostel.

Those two cities are only 40 minutes away from each other by train, so even if you just stay in one, you could just go visit the other one for 2-3 days.

Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. The hike up on the "mountain" is not worth it imo, but it's only like 1 hour so if you have time to burn, it's okay

Sorry guys, my pc died this Thursday, so I won't be able to post pictures before the beginning of next week.

Can post pictures from my phone for now though (taken from restaurant near Shinjuku)

Awesome in winter, had some great views of Fuji and surrounding areas

Took the plane from Sapporo (only 40min.), stayed at a hotel. There's a bus to the point. Wakkanai is pretty boring though.

Have always wanted to go to japan, but the big question is just how expensive is it?
>>
>>912029

It's not at all expensive unless you're a retard.
>>
>>912029
You can check airfares and hostel/hotel prices online (try wikitravel) and for everyday cost of living have a look at:

http://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/country_result.jsp?country=Japan&displayCurrency=USD
>>
>>912029
The hardest thing is if you plan on living there, or staying for an extended period of time. Things there are more expensive since they have a higher price of living. The most expensive thing would be your transport to Japan. It's a country that relies on a lot tourism and international transaction, so housing and basic needs are pretty cheap. Things like video games and their likeness are the things to avoid seeing as a basic video games run over $70.

damn that looks nice. I wish I could've seen snow covered Fuji from far away.
>>911991
it's called Kamou Sou, in a small town near Kakegawa. It's usually famous in summer, when the flowers are blooming there. When I went there, I was the first visitor in three days or so.

Nah, I wanted to go to Hida Takayama, which is the town Hyouka is based on, but unfortunately it was really far away and I didn't have enough time. Anyways more pictures

I personally avoided hangmates when I could, trying to find a nice place to eat for over 12 people and then split the bill was a nightmare.

OP if i go on a honeymoon to japan in june, where do you suggest i go? (4-5 days)
>>
Is it retarded that i want to go to kyoto instead of tokyo because i have really bad anxiety around large crowds (my breathing becomes rapid, i start sweating, then sweat more because i think everyone is watching me sweat)

And walk around the country side of kyoto


I speak 0 japanese but i don't want to interact with to many people anyways... i[ve been told it's a waste of money going to japan for that but i can't tell if japan has a nice enough nature/back country where it's worth wandering around

hmm where are you going from? The Island I've been posting the whole time (Ishigaki), is pretty damn nice (kind people, awesome and lonely beaches, great food that's very different from the mainland and just the right amount of activities for 4-5 days). Japan has a lot to offer, but I guess it's going to depend on what kind of stuff you both are into
>>918092
if you go to Kyoto and get anxious around large crowds..well you'll be better than in Tokyo I guess, but if you visit temples and stuff, there'll be a lot of people there anyways. Why not try Shizuoka or maybe Hokkaido? Much more nature and if you stay out of the big cities, I am sure it would be nice
>>
>>918092
Japan do have some nice nature and landscapes. As a volcanic island it have a nice vegetation you could go hiking or stuff. I dunno. I don't know how bad is your fear of crowds. There are times when trains are nearly empty so try to use them in those slots.
>>
>>918192
I came from a country with lots of beaches (indonesia) so id rather not focus on nature/beaches since i think it wont be as interesting to me.

I wanted to experience the culture more (things i can only get in japan) so probably some onsen, temples, and bustle rustle of a big city in japan?


Any idea what season it will be in june? Wouldve been nice if i can see some sakura
>>
>>918213
I assume you are not the same guy as >>918192

Anyway, about your season question http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2273.html

I don't think you will see any cherry blossom

no Cherry blossoms anymore unfortunately. But you're probably going to miss the rainy season which starts in July, so that's good.

If you only have four or five days, I would stay in Tokyo and maybe add a day trip+stay in a Ryokan to Hakone or Nikko or something.
